FringeReview UK 2021

Aphrodite

Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Evening Conversations/Life Laundry

Engrossing, it should provoke. Sudha Bhuchar absolves us by being bloody funny.


Hamilton and Me: An Actor’s Journal

In rapid, elegant, idiomatically kerned language, Giles Terera proves himself a superb expositor of where it happens.


Hole

Don’t miss the chance to see this transcendent actor prove she possesses another dimension altogether.


Icarus

After all the gods and their lack of choice, we come to the final instalment, the human dimension. Where we have one. A heartfelt, satisfying finish.


Living Newspaper #3 Royal Court Theatre

Hot off Sloane Square a team of writers, actors and creatives twist the news to truth


Living Newspaper #6

Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch what this does with the future


Living Newspaper #7

Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch a group of young dramatists take on the future


Mac and More

A consummate, intimate homage to theatre


Metamorphoses

The overriding sense, not surprisingly with these actors, is joy.


New Moon Monologues March

Don’t be lulled by the friendly colours and fluffy fonts. Queen of Cups is absolutely a company to watch, and its showcase productions are literally unmissable


Ode to Joyce

A gem of an incarnation.


Orpheus

A terrific reinvention, bringing gods and heroines up from the death of myth to an altered world.


Pandora’s Jar/Honour Among Thebes

The most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on the tragedies.


Persephone

Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Pygmalion

The most profound reinvention of this particular myth I’ve seen


Sacrament

A revelation, superbly written and acted. Comparisons have been made with A Girl Is A Half-formed Thing. I can think of no higher praise either. You must see this.


The Girl Who Was Very Good at Lying

Andrews vividly conveys what it is to be an undone thing, someone unravelling tales to live.


The Love and War Trilogy

An enormously satisfying traversal


The Odyssey

As spellbinding as Circe and Calypso in one


The Rape of Lucrece

The definitive way to experience this troublingly great, disturbingly unresolved poem


The Whole Shebang

See it again!


Troy Story

Again the most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on war, male sexuality and the Bechdel Test.


Wilde Without the Boy

A jewel of inhabiting
